Reviews for Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed Apr. 5, 2016

"Very good. I really like the filling. If you like a stronger cinnamon flavor, you probably want to add a little more and I also divided the batter into thirds. Essentially putting all the topping inside. I covered the top of the cake with a mixture of 1 tbsp. of sugar and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. I also substituted walnuts for pecans and 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts was plenty. I did agree with one other user that if you get just the cake and none of the topping, the cake seemed a little on the dry side."

"A little on the dry side. Any suggestions on how to make it more moist? Everybody said it was very good and I'm sure I will make it again. The streusel topping is delicious."
